Natural medicine has: Natural medicine has better results with hep-c, because allopathic doctors are trained exclusively to use pharma chemicals. The last time i checked there was no anti viral for hep-c , that was effective. A liver biopsy and repeat studies of the state of inflammation and repeat biopsy if the patient has chronic inflammation markers. Chronic infections occur when there is metabolic dysfunction blocks.

Find an expert: Maybe it's time to see an expert. People with hepatitis c generally need a biopsy to determine whether they need to be treated. We can now cure hepatitis c, so it's not a disease that should be ignored.
